Dr Michael Cullen.
And Who Said The Following?
“The appetite of Dr Cullen and this Government
for more taxes is legendary, ....The latest is
the carbon tax.
It will add 6c per litre to the price of petrol,
7c per litre to diesel, 6% to all power bills
and put the price of coal and gas up by 9%..
How about this?
“The madness of the Government’s new carbon tax is
that New Zealanders will be the only people in the
world paying it. It will drive up the costs of
living and undermine the competitiveness of New
Zealand business for negligible environmental gain....
“A further concern of the carbon tax is its
impact on inflation, interest rates and the
exchange rate. It will add to the costs of
fuel and power and these flow right through
the economy to basics like food. This puts
pressure on inflation, which in turn drives
up interest rates and the kiwi dollar.
The Government’s carbon tax is a classic
example of the way the Government is making
things tougher for the productive exporting sector.”
